Linda Watson-Brown – Ghostwriter

Multiple bestselling UK-based ghostwriter. 15+ years experience. Let me help you bring your story to life, in your words, in your voice.


I'm a bestselling, experienced ghostwriter based in the UK. I have worked on many commercial projects with major publishers and have written a number of bestselling titles.

In the last publishing year, four of my books were launched with major publishers, and I am currently developing proposals for three more.

I have recently worked with the remarkable Shaneda Daly on her memoir, 'Sins of the Father,' which was published by John Blake books, with a major campaign in Ireland followed by the UK release.

Della Wright's story, 'Trapped' linked to the vitally important campaign for 'Della's Law' which continues to receive widespread media coverage and gathered cross-party Parliamentary support.

'Sorry for your loss' by Kate Marshall looked at a year in the life of a woman who found her calling through working in a mortuary. The book was a bestselling title with coverage in many major media UK outlets.

I also worked with Ken Wharfe and Ros Coward on their book reflecting on the lasting impact of Princess Diana. This book received remarkable coverage by dozens of outlets nationally and internationally.

Scarlett Jones's memoir reached the Swedish market, four foreign deals were secured for Della Wright's book, and talks are underway for further projects with two previous clients.

My first book - 'The Step Child' - was a global bestseller and continues to hold its place in Amazon's Top 100 for this genre. From the point of writing that book, I realised it was fantastic privilege to be given the chance to help others speak out. I have been lucky enough to work with many many publishers on books which cover everything from abuse survival to family issues, from bereavement and grief to professional revelations, from psychic guides to animal adventures, from business ideas to lifestyle guides. I have worked on many projects which have been subject to Non Disclosure Agreements, and always maintain confidentiality.

Although I have always written, before journalism and ghosting, I was a university lecturer, and am still interested in political topics, particularly those of gender and sexual politics. I have written university textbooks and research papers, conference presentations and inaugural speeches, publicity material and columns, newspaper features and leader pieces.

I live on the beautiful North East coast of Scotland with my family and dog - but I do work internationally. Since lockdown, many projects have been completed through Zoom and clients have found that a very easy way to work - I'll be happy to offer this as an option for any future clients who prefer to use that approach.

I am able to respond very quickly to enquiries. I also offer a free, confidential 30-minute Zoom or telephone chat to potential clients.

I look forward to hearing your story!
